Rob Says: This washing station run by Fabien Nyambere was found in 1993 in the Kayanza commune of Muruta, not far away from the Rwandan border.

Kayanza is our favorite region in Burundi. 3 of the 5 Burundian coffees we bought in 2016 were from this region. They have perfect growing conditions in Kayanza and lots of knowledgeable people to help with harvesting and processing. Although we see popping up some dry-processed coffees left and right in Kayanza, we still prefer the classic washed version.

WE EXCPECT TO START ROASTING THE NEMBA THE FIRST WEEKS OF DECEMBER 2017
